Subtitle: Dear Diary, Why is Liz Making Me Do This?

Straight to number 8, with a bullet! We've made bullet journals people, or at least one of us has. Find out which one, what a bullet journal actually is (maybe?), what Liz regularly eats for breakfast and what our very special guest did on March 16, 2017. Plus we talk a lot about Chex mix juice.

Keywords/possible drinking game: Chex mix juice, my monthly, dear diary

 

The Bull-jit-jo

In a shaker combine:

Juice of one lime
15 mint leaves
20 blackberries
1 Tbsp sugar
4 oz Bulleit bourbon

Crush the berries a little bit with a muddle or wooden spoon.

Add ice and shake vigorously.

Strain.

Pour over ice and top with a splash of ginger beer.

The official Bullet Journal website.
This is a good place to start. You can read about the basics but I found the most helpful thing was to watch a couple videos so you can really see things put in action. This is the video from the official site and I also found this video very helpful.

We both bought fancy pants Leuchtturm notebooks, the dotted variety, which come with prenumbered pages and a dedicated index. Also, this is just a very nice notebook. Did I mention it was fancy pants?


PS, I highly encourage you to click the link above. This fancy pants notebook comes in a wide array of fancy pants colors. It is a sight to behold.

I (Liz) also treated myself to the following accoutrements:

And now, the moment you've been waiting for:

Liz's bujo!

Complete with wine stain.

And for real people, I will make a video of this shit, just say the word! I only need the slightest bit of encouragement.

Recipe Jenny used for her amazing Chex Mix juice roast

Grilled Shredded Wheat

At the beginning of the episode Liz talked about her dad's recipe for grilled shredded wheat which he thought should be included as a family recipe. While it's not Liz's recipe it is definitely a good, wholesome, comforting breakfast and if you're in the mood for something hella old timey you can't go wrong with shredded wheat! And Liz was correct when she said credit for this recipe actually goes to her dad's dad. It was one of the few dishes in his repertoire and we must give him his due!

First of all, buy this:

  • Spread butter on either side of a shredded wheat biscuit.
  • Poor about 1/2 cup of water into one end of the biscuit and let it run out the other. Repeat.
  • Fry in a skillet over medium heat until golden, about 3-4 minutes. Flip and repeat on other side.
  • Serve in a bowl, sprinkled with sugar, with cold milk.
